Visited Mad Hatter for happy hour with some former colleagues. Service was kind of slow, but in the restaurant's defense, it was busy. Crowded bar. We expected more character and fun in a place of that name. The only thing that differentiated it from another DC bar were several Alice in Wonderland items high on the wall. We really thought...

I went with a group that had a pre-arranged menu set up, so maybe that was part of it. But I paid $30 for a burger and fries with salad and dessert. For that price, the burger should have been at least what the menu said it was -- a 10-ounce patty. Not even close, and nothing special for taste.... More

Four of us stopped in as we made our way through several bars on Conn. They had a frozen mango-margherita on happy hour special - delish. But, we didn't feel like their drink prices were worth it once the specials were over. Also, this was the most crowded I felt in any bar that night. Something to see if you... More

We had a nice dinner after a long hot day touring DC. I had the chicken gyro, my mom had the tweedle dum burger and my son chose the chicken fingers app as his dinner. Everything tasted great. The only small disappointment was that we could not get hAppy hour drink prices a table away in the dining room.

My wife had a Monte Cristo breakfast sandwich and I had a Breakfast Philly Cheesestake. We make better sandwiches at home but they were still good. What made the difference was the Home Fries. They were to die for. I wish I knew their secret!

I was in DC for business and a teacher friend checked to see if they could accommodate two of us with food allergies. They had no problem (I can't have wheat/flour, milk products or wine/sulfites; the other person in our party couldn't have gluten). We were seated promptly and our wonderful server, Jesse, took notes on the allergens, and made... More

It's just a nifty place. Not off the beaten path by any means, but the servers are great, the food is affordable and delicious, and the bar exceptional. Great for brunch or casual date night. Looks like a fun place to celebrate a birthday, too.

If you like starting your weekends on Thursday, the Mad Hatter is it! The Thursday special is $1 beers and the dance floor gets going by 11-11:30. Drinks were cheap and it's a fun atmosphere, particularly if you want to be around a younger crowd.

I went on a Tuesday at 4pm for happy hour. The place was easy to find and well marked on the outside. The inside was very nice and clean. There were very few customers at this time. It began to pickup around 6pm. The bartender was very responsive and exceptional nice. The beer selection is not extensive and definitely lacking... More
